Contextualizing the Run: Offensive Run-Game Win Percentage – Week 3

The Update: Week 3

The Update is a series of adjusted statistics used to measure the efficiency of NFL teams relative to the average team. Positive numbers will always mean a good thing for a given team, offensively or defensively, while negative numbers will always mean a bad thing for a given team, offensively or defensively.

Everything is set to the baseline of whatever the NFL average is at the time. That means that if the NFL throws five interceptions every 100 throws, but Team X only throws two interceptions on 200 passes, Team X is eight interceptions above expectation (+8.00.)

Below are the terms that you’re going to need to know.

ANY/A Value-How many ANY/A yards above/below average an offense/defense is relative to the NFL average, based on ANY/A.

Adj Comp % Value-How many completions above/below average an offense/defense is relative to the NFL average, based on adjusted completion percentage. Adjusted completion is measured based on dropbacks, not just pass attempts.

Yards/Comp Value-How many yards above/below average a passing offense/defense is relative to the NFL average, based on yards per completion.

Sack % Value-How many sacks above/below average an offense/defense is relative to the NFL average, based on sack percentage.

Interception % Value-How many interceptions above/below average an offense/defense is relative to the NFL average, based on interception percentage.

Run % Value-How many carries above/below average an offense/defense is relative to the NFL average, based on the percentage of plays being run plays.

TFL % Value-How many tackles at the line of scrimmage and behind the line of scrimmage above/below average a run offense/defense is relative to the NFL average, based on tackle for loss percentage. We including 0-yard runs in with the tackle for loss data.

Yards/Rush+ Value-How many rushing yards above/below average and offense/defense is on carries that go beyond the line of scrimmage relative to the NFL average, based on yards per carry beyond the line of scrimmage.

How good is my pass defense? What is the difference between the 14th and 17th completion percentage? Which team has a low completion percentage but a high yards per completion mark? Which defense gets to the quarterback the most often? Which teams throw the most interceptions per play? Which run defenses are being hidden by playing in shootouts? Which offensive lines are allowing the most tackles for a loss on average this year? Which backs are doing the most with the least on the ground?
